, has heard me talk about my mentor, michael callahan. taught me in high school, helped me with money as i was going to law school. and he was on a pension. he was a disabled veteran. he was just such a good friend of mine. he and senator inouye were friends. they talked about what it's like to not have a limb. callahan's was a leg. inouye's was an arm. and they talked and they were friends. michael callahan worked back here as an aide to senators in summers and got to know senator inouye. my thoughts are with his family, including his wife irene, his son ken, their daughter mancheska, a stepdaughter jennifer and a granddaughter maggie, named after, of course, his first wife. their loss is the nation's loss. last night, we lost a noble soul. dan inouye lived a long and productive life. still i speak for dan's senate family when i say we're devastated by his passing. but we will all miss him. his legacy will live in the halls of the senate and the state of hawaii as long as history is written. his place in the history books will not fade. as the second-longest serving senator in our hi

this briefly, but the acting director of the cia, michael morelle is also complaining saying it quote, he departs from reality. should the government be working at all, in your opinion, with hollywood studios and helping them tell stories? this goes all the way back to top gun and maybe before that. is it a practice that should end in your opinion? >> no, i don't think it should necessarily end. i mean, again, you know, this film was originally set to come out before the election and we had documentation showing they were eager to work with them and make well, look very good, but i don't think it should end. you can work with the government without exposing national secrets and this highly classified after mission, the senators with all due respect would have been a lot better served dealing with it back then when they were getting unprecedented access and better served now to get to the bottom of benghazi and find out unanswered questions there and that's where their energy should probably be directed at now. >> dave: got to degree with you. scott taylor, great to have you. >> thank you.
